All over the world thousands of horses fall victim to everyday abuse, are being abandoned or are being violently killed. Most of them were racehorses that had been abandoned when they were deemed no longer productive. Some time ago, they were exhausted and weak and some of them had very few chances of survival. In a small Greek village, a group of people decided to take up their care and treatment. For the horses, this process was like a rebirth. The stigma of abandonment and resignation has been lifted and they became once again the beautiful and proud animals .Now they are healthy and lively. They have regained their good health and their confidence. They live freely as a flock in a form of co-existence with humans that is not based upon coercion and exploitation. I tried to capture this transformation as as a living proof of the need to redefine human relations with other living beings in terms of love and respect.
